Miami to a certain degree is not due to Florida being severely diluted by people from all over the country, but overall, economically and demographically, Miami resembles the New South more than anything else. Unquestionably part of the Sunbelt. it is certainly more southern than Baltimore and Maryland. I would question whether or not you've been to these cities, because you don't seem to be that knowledgeable about even your home state.
I don't believe that you have ever traveled to the state of Maryland.......

You judge Maryland based on Negativity and Hate......

Your latest posts have shown us just how opinionated and unsubstantiated anything you have said is. You lost this argument a long time ago, now you're just struggling to stay afloat. Have your fun with somebody else, i've got other users and better topics to post on.
All you have done is bully, intimidate, and refer to me as a Troll so basically you have lost credibility....

The way you are ranting shows that you have no respect for the state of Maryland and find it embarrassing for Maryland to be associated with the south but it is not your call to dictate against the Fact that Maryland is in the South........

And speaking of topics you are right; I should move on to bigger issues such as some of the Maryland Democrat politicians forcing efforts to stop development and business growth outside of the DC area.......

OK, but Maryland is in the South which makes Baltimore a Southern City....

Are they forgetting that Baltimore is Maryland too??? Why are they doing that?

Miami since it's founding was basically a city of Bahamian laborers & the wealthy elites from the NYC area where Flagler came from and vacationed in Miami & Miami Beach. It really was a Yankee / Northern city in demographics until WW2 when the military stationed thousands of troops in Miami Beach and many soldiers who were "southern" returned after the War to live.
The New York Times in the 1930s proclaimed Miami as the "6th. borough" once due to the amount of New Yorkers residing in the area!
Miamians do not consider themselves "Southerners" per se.
That is a very good story about Miami.

However Miami is part of the US and that makes Miami a Southern City.

I don't know what his angle is but anyway Miami has more of a Caribbean atmosphere than a typical southern atmosphere.....

I haven't referred to you as a troll in ages. As far as bully and intimidation, all I've done is disagree with you for the most part. I don't find it embarrassing for Maryland to be associated with the south...it's NOT the south. Period. And as far as it being a fact that Maryland is the south, it's not a fact. And I'm not making the call. Demographic, culture, and speech patterns are making that call for me.

Disagreeing by referring to me as a Troll and viewing Marylanders as ignorant for stating the Fact that Maryland is in the south....

So are admitting that you find it embarrassing and insulting for Maryland to be associated with the South because the reality is that Maryland is a Southern State....

Like you would know. I've been to Cumberland, Hagarstown, Baltimore, and Washington. I've driven the entire I-68 corridor and I-70 corridors. I have been to Maryland 15 times and stayed there each time for at two weeks. My uncle has been a prominent resident of Bethesda, Maryland for almost 40 years now. I've also been to Annapolis 5 times. I know this state pretty well. And my judgement on it is not based on it...I wouldn't call judging a state on the basis of demographics, dialect maps, and culture...as hatred-based. This has become senseless, circular, and repetitive.
